Are You Ready to Explore the Meaning of Your Journey?

Have you tried mental health therapy in the past only to find yourself still stuck and feeling more defeated than ever? Have you been caught in a cycle of psychiatric medication trials that only seem to relieve your symptoms ever so slightly or worse, exacerbate them further? The Third Realm Integration philosophy of heart-centered and holistic healing may be what you are looking for.

If you have a desire to change your life patterns and are ready to radically transform your relationship with your own suffering, I invite you to explore the possibilities for self-discovery and personal change with the Third Realm program. Let's drop into the heart and watch the rest unfold!

 

The Hero and Heroine's Journey

A Third Realm Philosophy

At Third Realm Integration, all practices are aimed at supporting clients along The Hero or Heroine's Journey. While most men identify with The Hero's Journey and most women identify with The Heroine's Journey, there is arguably room for crossover.


The Hero and Heroine's Journey are archetypal myths or motifs that provide a framework for understanding the natural arch of human psychological development. Joseph Campbell (1949) was most famous for his work on The Hero's Journey, which described the call to action, adventure, and self-sufficiency. However, he never pursued an understanding of The Heroine's Journey. As a result, Western culture was largely absent of literature about the feminine's path until 1990 when Jungian psychoanalyst and student of Campbell's, Maureen Murdock, began writing about The Heroine's Journey. When she asked Campbell why he never wrote about The Heroine's Journey, he stated "Women don't need to make the journey. In the whole mythological tradition, the woman is there. All she has to do is realize that she's the place that people are trying to get to” (Campbell, 1981). 

While Campbell may have been correct, it is argued that his perspective possessed far too narrow of a scope of the feminine's role and value. For centuries, long before Murdock's work, ancient and indigenous cultures and religions have appreciated The Heroine and her Journey through worship of primordial deity goddesses like Inanna (or Ishtar), Isis, Sekmet, the Helen of Troy, and Kali. In Christianity, The Heroine's Journey is portrayed in the story of Mary Magdelene and others. In Buddhism, she is known as Kuan Yin, the goddess of compassion.

The Hero's Journey

Are you on the masculine path of adventure seeking your own independence and having to slay the obstacles of the inner and outer dragons along the way? Or, are you refusing the call altogether?

The Heroine's Journey

Have you lost a connection to your body, heart, and intuition caused by a drive to satisfy the expectations of masculine ideals? Are you resisting the descent into your own suffering out of fear of the unknown?

Third Realm Integration Model

Third Realm Integration is a heart conscious healing program rooted in depth and transpersonal psychology. In depth work, the primary goal is to find wholeness by making the unconscious conscious. With the addition of transpersonal techniques to expand consciousness like breathwork, dream work, heart-centered meditation, archetypal exploration, holotropic or psychedelic states, and cosmology, the Third Realm model can help clients facilitate integration, harmony, and inner stillness.

The Third Realm Integration coaching program will equip you with all the necessary tools to manage emotional reactivity and facilitate transformational healing as you travel along the arduous path of The Hero or Heroine's Journey. If our paths have crossed for a reason in this very moment, I welcome your inquiries. Reach out now to find out what the Third Realm is all about!

"Most people spend their entire lives defending against being vulnerable. They receive the call of The Hero or Heroine's Journey, but hang up the phone out of fear. Instead, they protect themselves with substances, rage, and psychological manipulation, all of which work for a while. But what happens when they stop working? What are we left with?


The answer is grief...grief from the lost connection to ourselves, our soul, our inner god, and our intuition. Only an open heart can bring us back home, maybe to the home we never knew."

My Coaching Style

“When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready...The teacher will disappear.” – Tao Te Ching

Changes happen when we can shift our perspective on how we thought life was supposed to be, get comfortable with lots and lots of self-compassion, recognize the role we play in co-creating our own reality, and are ready to take full responsibility for shaping our future. My goal is to show you how to awaken your heart's wisdom (or inner healer) by embracing your Hero or Heroine's Journey with all of its teachings, no matter how painful. After all, it is not the people, places, or things that teach us what we need to know along the way. It is the path itself. 

By integrating our deepest wounds and integrating our fears of vulnerability, we will discover the life we've been searching for. By employing the stabilizing force and compassionate protection of the heart center, I will teach you how to walk through the fire without getting burned. Up next comes psychic freedom and radical independence. In my opinion, there is nothing more beautiful than that.

If now is the time to awaken your heart's wisdom and manifest your highest potential, let's meet in the Third Realm. 

May the light always lead your way,

Maegan K.

About Me

Greetings! My name is Maegan Kenney and I am an intuitive healer, archetypal astrologer, and owner of Third Realm Integration. In my former life, I worked as a mental health counselor with a specialty in forensic and correctional counseling and trained as a clinical psychologist. I have both personal and professional experience with the many shadow elements of pharmaceutical medications and the Big Pharma Machine as well as the devastating consequences of an uncontrolled opioid pandemic and a broken criminal justice and mental health system. I have shared my perspectives on these subjects at academic conferences and on public platforms including the U.S. News & World Report, National Academy of Addiction Medicine, American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), iHeartRadio, WBZ-Boston, The Boston Globe, MassInc, Shatterproof, The Addictionary podcast, and more.

At this time, I am completing my PhD at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) with a research focus on The Heroine's Journey and the use of compassion for female psychedelic practitioners. I founded the Third Realm method after years of developing my own heart-centered consciousness through heart-centered meditation and archetypal/natal astrology. I also host the Third Realm Integration Podcast (T.R.I.P.) where I share my perspectives on all things depth and transpersonal psychology. I have also been a student of the heart, earth, and cosmos for many years and have learned my craft from the inside-out. As a true introvert, I love silence, reading about ancient civilizations, exploring the outdoors, and stargazing. My two service dogs are Gracie and Gaia who often join me in session :)
